Lawful Long Residence Accrues During Periods of Student Appeals Litigation

Shuyeb Muquit argued before the Administrative Court during emergency hours that all the courts that had thus far deliberated upon his client’s case had erroneously ignored the right his client had acquired to remain in the UK on grounds of lawful long residence. Applications for extensions in that capacity had been rejected by all Chambers of the Tribunal and the Court of Appeal. However, having taken over the case only two hours before the proposed flight departure, Shuyeb successfully halted the student's removal by arguing that this right had legitimately accrued during the periods in which his client’s student appeals litigation had been ongoing.
